I think the results of the previous round and this round put our abilities into perspective.
We were all very excited with the win over the Hawks. And rightly so. We were also somewhat satisfied with the win over Brisbane.
However now that we are three weeks in, a clearer picture of where we sit is starting to emerge.
The 2nd half of the 1st quarter and the the 2nd quarter of the Hawks game showed up weaknesses. Yes, we were able to re-group and grind out a comfortable win, but the recent performances of the Hawks shows that that wasn't much of an achievement.
Add in the 'only just' performance against the lowly Brisbane - especially that 3rd quarter. Then add in yesterday's debacle against. the even more lowly Carlton and you start to get the picture that we aren't much of a team.
I can't see us winning next week - short break after a taxing game, in Adelaide against a pretty good side.
Both us and the Pies will be well rested for ANZAC Day. Their midfield will ■■■■ all over ours.
Then a 5 day break to the Melbourne game.
We then have Freo (away), Geel, WC, Rich, GWS. No gimmies there.
I originally had us finishing 7-12. From what I have seen so far this year - of us and other teams - I can't see us being above 10th come the end of the year. Maybe 6 more wins for the year.
